The start of a new year always means project planning is in full gear at the Hartland Chamber. Many of this year's activities are open to the general public, so we encourage everyone to participate. Chamber activities offer the chance to meet new people, expand contacts, discover a different culture, unearth a hidden talent or solidify new relationships.

Danube River cruise

While the chamber's upcoming Iceland trip is sold out, the Hartland Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Pewaukee Chamber is offering another travel opportunity that is open to the public. The public is invited to join the chamber for an eight-day Danube River cruise. We are booking for the cruise set for Sept. 2 to 9, 2018, which departs from Budapest, Hungary, with stops in Slovakia, Austria and Germany along the way. This trip also allows for participants to tailor their travels with optional pre- and post-cruise packages.

A free informational meeting is scheduled for 5 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 28, in Hartland. Contact the chamber at 262-367-7059 or to register or for more details.


Registration for sponsorships and golf teams or individuals will be open soon for the June 2 Tri-Chamber Golf Outing at Western Lakes Golf Course. Participants need not be Hartland Chamber members to join.

The golf outing is an opportunity to rub elbows with decision-makers in the area and talk mulligans with business owners. Early-bird pricing is available. Those without teams will be placed on one by the chamber.

Community Fest

Attendees of this year's Lake Country Community Fest will enjoy the Milwaukee Brewers Famous Racing Sausages, the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile and a rock climbing wall.

With over 150 business and organizations in attendance, the annual event is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, March 25. Organized by the Hartland Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Delafield Chamber, the event brings together area businesses and the community to break the winter blues together under one roof for a day full of activities, demonstrations and entertainment.

Event vendors are still being accepted, but few booth spaces remain available — contact the chamber immediately for details. Visit the fest website for full details,

Kudos Awards

The chamber is geared up for its annual Kudos Awards Dinner scheduled for April 20. The event recognizes outstanding businesses, organizations and individuals who helped the chamber achieve its mission.

The chamber is currently filming all award nominees lip-syncing and dancing to "Me Too” by Meghan Trainor. The video will be posted on and the chamber Facebook page.

To hear the winners announced firsthand, plan to register for the evening at Weissgerber’s Seven Seas.

20/20 Networking

20/20 Networking fills one hour to develop sales opportunities, increase contacts and learn something new while having a bit of fun. Each session is held at a different chamber member business. Sessions are 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. the fourth Thursday of each month. Past guests have learned to play the ukulele, toss a pizza crust, write a news release and how to be
a mixologist all in 20 minutes.


“Bring Your Own Cards” is an after-hours networking event offering business leaders and their employees the opportunity to socialize with colleagues while forming professional relationships. Held 5 to 6:30 p.m. the second Tuesday of each month, the event is booked through 2017 at various member businesses.
